Everyone needs a little break sometimes. I’m realizing how hard it is to stop working when you’re the one calling the shots and sick days seem to be a thing of the past. But I’m grateful for sweet friends and a loving husband who remind me to slow down. I loved getting to spend some downtime with one of my favorite families last weekend at their family’s beach house!
It’s been a while since I’ve done a family-picture-post and I have quite a few families to blog about. Each of these families is SO sweet. Getting to spend time with and photograph a person’s family, newborn baby, or family reunion is an honor I don’t take lightly. I love getting to see your love for each other.
Thanks so much!
Love daddies and daughters!
Ray Family Reunion
What a fun family reunion!
These are my siblings by marriage. So lucky to have them in my life!!
Check out this family of adorable-ness! Loved hanging with you guys!
Katie and Joel are my dear friends who just got married in June. They always give me the go ahead to be creative and crazy, so I pulled them outside in the dark and in the rain/snow to get these festive pictures in a Christmas Tree lot. James came along and held my speedlight. He is secretly hiding behind Katie and Joel in half these pictures.
Time for some hot cocoa!
Katie made this banner- how cute and crafty is she?
I call this picture on the right “ghosts of christmas present”- my flash was too close and totally ghosted them out. But I kinda like it!
I love this sweet family- they used to be our neighbors, but now they live in a super cute house across town. They broke out the Christmas decorations early to get some festive pictures. Their son Jasper and I have taken pictures before and he’s been featured on this parenting blog and now he’s starting an acting career! No one can resist his red curls! I had so much fun hanging with you three. I know your holidays will be filled with lots of cheer.
Mandey is so stinkin’ pretty. I had to put up this picture.
Lots of love for this little guy.
Gah! I can’t stand how cute this family is. Not only are they great friends, but they have also been the best clients. Only 6 months ago I was taking Nash’s newborn pictures. I can’t believe how much he has grown!
